  • Why always Argentina group now…….. nawa o

  • Luk 4ward In Meetin Germany In D Round Of 16

  • argentina every world cup ..nah wa o

    messi shd beta sustain an injury by den oo

  • Our first game is against Croatia. Croatia is a strong football nation.we will meet Argentina in the final group match. It is still fair group. We need to prepare well. Our players need to work very hard. Our first game will determine how far we can qualify from that group. If we can win our first game then beat Iceland, then we will qualify from that group. Our first game is very crucial. We most win our first game.

  • What is this every time? Who ever made this covenant should please break o , it’s no longer funny

  • Not a bad draw for the eagles tho….the best part is, we get to play Argentina in the last game of the grp!! We shld just try n secure maximum points from the first two marches and we good to go!!! #Go_Eagles!!!

  • We should be able to qualify from this group without stress

  • Woaw…. This is owesome… I love it. This is gonna be a return leg of the friendly

  • Let’s cross our fingers

  • We are playing Iceland, Croatia b4 playing Argentina, which implies that we might have secure our place in the next round b4 meeting Argentina, go eagles go!

  • The group draws is fixed, Nigerian team is destined to be meeting Argentina, but this might be the last because we will beat Messi’s and Agueros Argentina as well as Modric ‘s Croatia in the group stages and even later in the finals

  • We are good to go

  • Croatia is a problem here i tel u

  • :-* Nigeria&Argentina to qualify. Croatia for best losser. Am sorry for the iceland football association:-( ;-(

  • Hmmmm it seems like champions league between Chelsea and Barcelona… we can only make it with the right players. Nigeria still need vincent eyeama and Ambrose efe for we to have confidence to over come our group but the group is fair and nice

  • Always join wt dis rubish agentina

  • Croatia has luka modric ,and that Juventus midfielder that scored champions league goal against Madrid last UEFA champions league final.. I forgot his name.

  • My rules for Argentina game and other games:

    1) Never allow any opponent spend 2 seconds with the ball.

    2) Never concede a goal. Make deal with Dangote for three trailers. Once attacking become severe on us, get the trailers in front of the goal post.

    3) Once you miss the ball, never miss the leg. Take them out.

    4) Once in our opponent’s 18, shot like a sniper.

    5) Once you miss an open chance or net like Yakubu, just go for Russian citizenship. Don’t just bother….

    6) Play with all dedication like this is our only chance to lift the trophy
    I rest my case…

    Come on guys, let’s get this job done!…

  • Our problem na Croatia and Iceland not Argentina

  • hee,this is realy a group of death

  • Many are with lilly liver .it has always been a close game between Argentina & Nigeria. I strongly believed this time around we will turn the table against them.

    Wonderful! At least we are guarranteed 6points. Winning against Croatia and Iceland. Against Argentina our regular customer, anything can happen.

  • Expected draw, I know FIFA will want another ARG Vs NIG rematch.

  • Which group Ghana dey

  • Actually I didn’t read the post but if we can beat Argentina in the group stage we’re good enough to win the tournament!!!

  • Tough game I expect when the game begins…. The team shud not be carried away with the Friendly victory…
    Nigeria wud be the underdog in dat fixture.. No doubt.. . But if they keep up the good forms,, good tactics and injury free.. Players being calm and supported handsomely… Argentina can be beaten…
    I see us going through…

  • We are battle ready for them,no qualms

  • ARGENTINA AGAIN!!!….don’t be surprise if messi got injured and won’t make the tournament.. Trust me ogume charm dey oo..

    Only messi present on the field he’s like 10players playing..

    I believe in God

    I believe rohr will deliver the best player bcos he’s still not satisfy with whom he has presently

    It’s only a foolish man that dies before setting his eyes on what is chasing him. There’s no team in that group that is not beatable, no team, not even Argentina with Messi. And just to remind you, Nigeria has a very good record against European teams. Nigeria 3 Bulgaria 0 (1994), Nigeria 2 Greece 0 (1994); Bulgaria 0 Nigeria 1 (1998); Nigeria 3 Spain 2 (1998); England 0 Nigeria 0 (2002); Bosnia 0 Nigeria 1 (2014). As a matter of fact, Nigeria has won more matches against European teams than we’ve lost. So, Super Eagles should take that motivation into the matches against Croatia and Iceland. Another motivation is the win against Argentina in Krasnodar friendly. At least, for once, we know we are capable of beating them. I strongly believe that we will come out of the group, if we can put our house in order.

  • Croatia and Iceland they will qualify from this group

  • Super Eagles should be careful with Croatia, they can be very dangerous, I watched their play off games, they were very good. If Nigeria can get a good result against Croatia, Super Eagles shall qualify.

  • MESSI AGAIN!!! God we help us ooo

  • A very good dw

  • NOT A BAD GROUP BUT A VERY TRICKY & DANGEROUS GROUP.WE NEED RESULTS AGAINST CROATIA &ICELAND 2 QUALIFY 4M D GROUP.EAGLES

  • We can only qualify with add work,commitment and dedication and patriotism,we should not rely on miracle as usual

  • Before you become the best, you need to beat the existing best alredy!!!!! We only need artwork and determination to overcome!!!!!!!

  • Super eagles are ready for any challenge from Argentina

  • 1994:arg 2 nig 1
    2002:arg 1 nig 0
    2010:arg 1 nig 0
    2014:arg 3 nig 2
    2018: ???

  • Messi kun Aguero Dimaria Dybala pelloti oooh #Chelsea nightmare all I know is we surely qualifie from this group #Believe

  • Argentina full squad for russia world cup L messi, Paulo d ybala, m icadi, kun Aguero ,perroti, J machriano, j pastore, N otamendi, M rojo, k Romero can super eagles make it this time around?

  • We go scarta Argentina

  • MAKE UNA WIN THEM AS UNA WIN THEM IN FRIENDLY I NO WANT HEAR STORY

  • Russia 3 Saudi i

  • No course for alarm, eagles are in a very big problem, we won the friendly against the ageyes, we are good at that whenever we met them , but at main business their score hero Lionel messi use to be incredible against the eagles

  • Must we always qualify for every world cup to come an play Argentina

  • Hmmm!…perfect opportunity for Argentina to quickly erase the 4–2 annihilation by Super Eagles…..so sad!

  • i believe in NIGERIA

  • fran 2 weeks

    you think that croatia cant beat nigeria?croatia is your big problem and i dont know how you think beat us .god luck

  • We must beat Argentina…. we must defeat them this is a last tym….. if u want to be the best u have beat the best

  • What I can only say for now is, go Eagles go!

  • I pray for Nigeria to win both countries but for me,is a hard game and our players should play a collective game that’s the only way to beat both Argentina and Croatia

  • All we need do, is to get prepared both physically and mentally. Target the trophy not just qualification from the group stage. Moreover, all the countries in our group are no pushovers. Iceland did marvellously well, in the last competition. So no use to underrate any country. If we target the trophy, we’ll do well but if our aim is just to beat Argentina, we’ll miss out. Be strong, our Super Eagles, I wish you all the best.

  • Nigeria will beat Argentina again
